Muenster Chicken (How appropriate for Halloween)

Just in case it's not glaringly obvious by now, I did my weekly planning from Jessica's blog so that is where this recipe came from. I didn't have any but Blaine said it was really good!

Kelly Chicken
by Colleen Kelley (another winner, thanks Colleen!)

8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I only used 3)
1 egg
3/4 c milk
2 c bread crumbs, seasoned with fresh garlic
12 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
8 slices Muenster cheese
4 tsp flour
1 1/2 c beef broth

Cut each chicken breast into 3 pieces. Beat egg and add milk. Soak the chicken in the egg mixture for 3 hours. Shake chicken in bread crumbs and let sit for 1/2 hour. Brown chicken pieces in a hot skillet with olive oil, browning both sides. Place in a 9x13 inch baking dish (I used a smaller one because I was cooking less chicken). Cover chicken with sliced mushrooms and Muenster cheese. Mix beef broth and flour until smooth. Pour over chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Serves 8.

Oh and please, I didn't even look at the recipe until I was like ready to eat. So none of this soaking for three hours and sitting for half an hour business. I soaked for approximately two seconds and let sit about one second (while I moved from the bread crumbs to the pan) and it turned out great. It may have been better with the soaking, not sure.

Oh and Blaine told me it was criminal that I served this without mashed potatoes. Whatever that means.
